“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Fun, Fun at the Zoo!!

Can you see little Miss, Avery crowding in to touch the snake?!
Karrie and Aaron and their new place!
Look at Payton, my brave girl, touching the snake!
Ahhhh, Mikkel and Payton (always posing!)
That's what I said, "always posing!"
Intensely viewing the animals!
Robert's little sisters.........
How's the view from up there, Owen?!
I'm glad we paid for the wagon that only the adults sat in or pushed!
Hey, even the "little man" touched the snake!
We picked up Mikkel in Pocatello and headed to Idaho Falls for the day. She is one crazy girl. We all adore her and are glad she was available. She is on a tight schedule filled with socializing, socializing and more socializing! We drove to IF to visit Karrie and Aaron and see their new home. It was so nice. The place is huge, open and roomy, and very warm and cozy. We loved it, and I think the kids favorite part was their indoor tennis court, you know, the unfinished basement where they hit balls against that wall all day! Robert's convinced we need to get the three little ones tennis rackets now! We headed to the zoo and the day was perfect. The weather was just right and the kids loved seeing all the animals. Later we barbecued at the new place and Jen and the kids came over too. They were visiting in IF and taking Sarah the next day to BYU, Idaho for EFY. We don't get to see them very often as they live in Colorado, so that was a nice surprise. Unfortunately by then, my camera had died. So, I didn't get any pics. of their cute family. But, don't you worry...this camera nazi will get several this summer when we all meet in Bear Lake for our family reunion! So, thanks for letting all of us mess up your beautiful new home, Karrie and Aaron, and especially for feeding this rowdy crew!
